Colleges and My Not-So-Distant Future

Posted on December 15, 2013

This is a short but excited post.

I’m a senior in high school and that means colleges. This weekend has been a rather interesting one, I’ve been accepted to two schools I’ve always dreamed about, MIT and CMU.

I was absolutely shocked. I’ve been wanting the chance to go to a school like either of them since I was 8. These last 9 or so months have seen me wobbling back and forth between hopelessness, confidence, and excitement over the idea of attending. The fact that both want me and that I’m actually getting to go is humbling, terrifying, and making me a little teary-eyed all at the same time.

I’ve decided I’ll be attending Carnegie Mellon University next fall. It wasn’t an easy choice by any stretch; blood, sweat and tears were shed over it, but I’m happy with my decision.

I’d like to take a moment to extend my sincerest thanks to any and everyone who has helped me get through what’s proving to be a long 4 years. It means the world to me.

In particular, I’ll never be able to thank those who have given me the chance to work at labs at the U of M and MIT enough. They’ve taken me a few steps closer to my dreams and I know that without them I’d have never been accepted.

Now of course, I have to make it 4 years at CMU :)
